Call for Panels

A Panel discussion is a live or virtual discussion about a specific topic within the field of MobileHCI amongst a selected group of panelists who share different perspectives. The panel is usually facilitated by a moderator who guides the panel, asking the panelists specific questions, controlling for panelist time and facilitating questions from the audience. A MobileHCI panel will usually include 3-4 experts or practitioners of a specific topic related to MobileHCI. The panelists should offer their opinions, research insights and answer questions from the audience.

Panel length should be between 60-90 minutes.
